Does anybody have the rear diff bushing tool I could rent? Got the parts ordered just need the one for the rear most bushing. Posted a thread in the Southeast section with no replies.

Oh and I ordered 4 new Hankook Ventus V2 Concept tires, flex disk, center support bearing and the rear diff bushing today.

Fuel filter is in!!

Took a bit if effort to blow through the old filter, the new Bosch unit had absolutely no resistance

Also, finally pulled off the heat shield from the passenger engine mount that has been vibrating against my eBay headers for some time.

Still rattling somewhere, but its nowhere near as annoying.

I think of it more as a "punk rock" or "Johnny Cash" edition.

I do have recording/mixing gigs down in Watts, Compton, and Lynwood, and I do get the OGs saying "that's a down ass ride"

Edit: Would trade these 119s for 68's in a second.

Awesome! I have to admit, I do miss them. Maybe I'll miss them a little less once I install my sway bars. What shocks did you pair them with? Are you liking them?

Yeah I'm definitely enjoying these, despite the fact that I am running them with Bilstein Tourings, which are not valved for these, but I just hadn't been able to justify buying the Koni adjustabales when these struts only had 10k miles on them.

Honestly, I haven't hit the bump stops once, while driving in the canyons, and the car feels planted and stable.

At the very worst these struts will blow out early, and then I will replace with Konis

I have got the strut replacement DIY down to an hour a side, I know its not super quick, but its really become an easy job for me, so I figured I would slap them in there, and see what happens.

I must say this set up doesn't feel as incorrect, as it is supposed to be...
a bit bumpy at low speed on bad graded roads, I will say.

I do expect them to be shot in another 30k based on theory, and then on to the "proper" setup.

So Khoalty finally shipped out the resistors for my turn signals...

Nearly 10 days after I placed and paid for the order, for 2 items they had in stock.

What a joke.

So what exactly did you do to or for your E46 today? This isn't a vendor-bashing thread.

Back on topic, took it to work today so I could give it a nice wash on my break.
